I have tried to use fast fingers to preorder a PS5 as soon as it restocks and have failed. Now I want to turn to the dark side.
What do I use to achieve this? I know python and shell scripting but know nothing about web development.

Game theory at work turning this into a mutually assured destruction scenario where everyone loses.
Next step will be an AI that predicts when there will be stock and sends the order a few milliseconds before the stock is officially listed.
I don’t see the game theory aspect here. Can you explain?
Well, like game-theory applies to all such scenarios.
That is technically correct but game theory is not useful here because scalpers and normal consumers aren’t parties that can ever (even hypothetically) reach a compromise. If you look at the 101 example of “two hostages being interrogated separately”, this situation is nothing like that. Everyone is just trying to preorder one or more video game console as stupid as it sounds
